    Here is the patchscript from a chinese guy called Yaoz.
    Don´t know if he is the origin, or just someone who distributed it. I have just patched a driver, and it seems to work.
    Made some minor changes in the script and added the mobilty adapters.

    right now i have win xp 64 installed ( due to the last patch script), but from what i have seen, it will work.

    Thanks to Unwinder for originating this kind of Drivermod, Huangyao for providing most of the newer scripts, and a new guy named yaoz particular for this script. !! Thanks a lot guys.

    yaoz has added the 3850 to the script. so if some of you would like to try, here is the xp 32 bit patchscript for the 8.44 driver.

    Well the specview score is the same with the 8.44 driver as the 8.39.1.1 but I'm sure there were bug fixes with it too. A million thanks to everyone who made this passable.

    I tried the script, it works, performance is about the same as 8.39.1.1 patched driver, however the selection lag and selection bug still exists .. and CCC can't be installed.

    I have tried with my HD3870, but it does not work.
    Should I try to patch in to FL 8600 or 7600?

    What I know is that 3850 and 3870 have different Device IDs. The second script is for a 3850 Graphic card and need the newbietechFireGLX2000.rth.
    Maybe it works, if you change the 3850 to a 3870 Device ID. Do you have tried to update those INF file with a 3870 Device ID?

    Hi there!

    I'm sorry, I have not those script newbietechFireGLX2000.rth. I have tried to find that, but without success. :knock:
    For now I have not a 3850 or 3870 and "just" a 8800 GT. I'm waiting for a x64 version of this mod and then I will buy such noble Graphic Device. :evilgrin: I have tried the x64 mod for a ATi 2900 *.sy_, that works without newbietechFireGLX2000.rth and RT show no errors. So, I hope that could work for me, if it is impossible to get a x64 mod for a 38x0 card. But nevertheless the 38x0 series is much better than 2900 series, so it is worth to wait!
    For now I suggest you read the whole thread "FireGL 8600 mod for 2900XT finally released" at http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=237273.
    There you will find lots of information. And then maybe, it is worth to try out to use the option and the settings for a FireGL8600.
    I have read at newbietech, that someone got it to work, but that is a Chinese forum and I use the google translation tools, so don't trust that information is correct.

    Please don't forget to share your knowledge/finding/etc!

    I did this patchscripting, everything seems to work fine, except of the selection bug, which still remains :cry:

    this script you are talking about is just a helpfile.
    it just gives some info on the card / device id you are patching.

    it´s not necessary to have.

    you should take a closer look at the files !!

    the patchscripts are the *.rts (s =script)
    while the helpfiles are the *.rth (h=help) files.

    Hi schoko!

    Thanks a lot! Good to know, those *.rth files are not necessary. I hope CheResist get it to work and share his experience with a 38x0 series card with us.
    Is there any news about a x64 mod for a 38x0 series card?




    Hi maxtorag!

    Have you tried just the hand.ma file or some other heavy high poly scene?
    Those hand.ma scene gives me a 1.5 second selection lag at a 8800 GT card. (BTW: same results at a SoftMod Quadro FX4000.) Those model seems to be very special. ;)

    I hate that hand.ma file :puke2:
    I use my own High poly scenes with lots of nodes...and the lag is from 5 seconds to 15 seconds...such a contrast to FPS :cry: On my 7900GS, the lag is around 1 - 2 secs.
    I just use the outliner to select things and sort nodes to reference layers to speed things up, but it's really something I would like to get rid off. Especially for UV edits on higher density meshes.

    Me too! :approval:


    Up to 15 seconds?! That sounds awful! Have you tried to delete the old drivers using a app like Driver Cleaner Pro or something like that? Maybe there are some older versions which disturb the newer versions. Those drivers are really doggedly. I use the Safe Mode of Windows XP and delete my drivers manually, to be sure. (if I'm testing a newer version or what ever...)

    Have you test that x64 mod for 2900XT@v8650? Is there also a lag bug?

    My 8800GT gives me at maya-02 50.02 fps, that is not too bad. Perhaps I should wait a little longer for a newer driver version... :(
